Court remands farmer for defilement
Kwadwo Mahama, a farmer, has been remanded into police custody by the Akim Swedru Circuit Court for allegedly luring a 12-year-old imbecile into a cocoa farm and forcibly had sex with her.
He pleaded not guilty to defilement and would reappear on November 15.
The prosecution told the court presided over by Mr Yaw Attah Sampong that in the course of police investigations, it was revealed that when the accused held the victim's hand and were moving towards the farm, he was confronted by some students who are witnesses in the case.
The accused was however caught by the students having sex with the girl who was screaming for help, and they reported the matter to the school authorities, who caused his arrest.
